Angry Change default position of the X cursor or get rid of it!!!

I am running a mouse-less system, and i need X to NOT load the cursor in the center of the screen as the application i am running has a flash document directly below it, which automatically puts the flash file "on top" EVEN if i have a java script setfocus() to the field i need acess to.

I have tried using void in my Xorg.conf file for the mouse driver, which DOES disable the mouse, but for some reason the cursur is still on top of my window... and flash thinks this is a mouse

can any one tell me hhow to get rid of the mouse all together or change the default location to the top of the page so that it doesnt set the flash application on top??
